Marldon views enterprise as an integral part of any societies wellbeing. As a business we are always conscious of our obligations to the wider world. Our attitude is reflected in the attitude we take to our projects, in our employment practises and the charity work that is undertaken by Marldon, whether as a company or by individual employees.
Marldon is very proud to sponsor A.S.A.P or African Solutions to African Problems.
A.S.A.P is based in South Africa and identifies rural women caring for orphans and vulnerable children in their communities and develops their skills and knowledge so that they are able to create sustainable drop-in centres tending to the children’s health and wellbeing.
Marldon’s interior designer Rosie Bartlett has recently been involved in a fundraising lunch intended to raise money for this special cause. In addition, Marldon has contributed a large sum of money to A.S.A.P following this well attended and fruitful event.
Marldon Bike Ride:
In addition, Marldon have been proud to support the British Heart Foundations London – Brighton Bike Ride for the last two years. In addition, we are proud to have sponsored our Joinery Director: Eddie Markes for his involvement in the Great London Row organised by the London Rowing Club, a 150-year old organisation which brings together people of all backgrounds in pursuit of the sport.

Construction And Social Responsibility:
Marldon recognise that any development or construction project sits in the heart of a community. As such it can be a vehicle for enhancing social value. We view this responsibility as an opportunity. Job creation, local procurement from local businesses, focus on local and UK-wide manufacturing and enhancement of the built and natural environment are all facets of what any Marldon construction project can bring to an area. With our policy of retaining and operating our developments, we bring with us real long-term investment in the community and its people.
Most recently, at Kennington Lane, we donated money and materials to the Vauxhall City Farm, a little piece of the countryside in Central London and a haven of calm and learning for children of all ages.. Please visit their website at http://vauxhallcityfarm.org/.
Furthermore, Marldon are in conversation with the Hummer Tuttle Foundation’s office in London to discuss potential involvement in their charitable work within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, which aims to encourage young disadvantaged UK students in their professional choices and enable them to visit the USA.
Marldon are also investing in local businesses via project procurement within the Borough. Currently, we are sourcing all our concrete from Tower Hamlets. We are also discussing apprenticeship and employment opportunities with representatives from the Borough. We aim to create long-term employment for local people from all backgrounds within our construction division and within our hospitality teams.
